Kindle free books: The Harper Collins megathread

Rather than start lots of threads I thought I'd bundle some together:

Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=79147

The Matrix and Philosophy
http://www.amazon.com/Matrix-and-Phi...reative=381421

The New York Times bestseller. Renowned thinkers discuss the ancient and modern concepts that inform The Matrix.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? - Sidney Sheldon
http://www.amazon.com/Are-You-Afraid...reative=381421
Readers don't expect literary genius from Sheldon, but they do expect to be entertained, and once again the popular TV-producer-turned-storyteller delivers the goods. When four top scientists at the imposing think tank KIG wind up dead in four different parts of the world, is it coincidence?

Weetzie Bat by Francesca Lia, Block
http://www.amazon.com/Weetzie-Bat-eb...reative=381421

An offbeat heroine shares a Hollywood cottage with three equally quirky companions; in PW 's words, "Block's first book is related in a breezy, knowing voice; her strange and sparkling tribute to growing up in L.A. is a rare treat for those sophisticated enough to appreciate it." Ages 12-up.

Boyfriend League by Rachel, Hawthorne
http://www.amazon.com/Boyfriend-Leag...reative=381421
The Ragland Rattlers $1 Night $1 baseball cap with home team logo $1 program $1 hot dogs $1 drinks $1 popcorn But how much to get the hot pitcher to notice you exist? Teen fiction.

Football Genius by Tim Green
http://www.amazon.com/Football-Geniu...reative=381421
Adult author and former Atlanta Falcon Green (American Outrage) delivers a satisfying YA debut, using his own NFL experience to bring readers behind the scenes. Teen fiction.

The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie
http://www.amazon.com/Body-Library-e...reative=381421
The very-respectable Colonel and Mrs Bantry have awakened to discover the body of a young woman in their library. She is wearing evening dress and heavy make-up, which is now smeared across her cold cheeks. But who is she? How did she get there? And what is her connection with another dead girl, whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned quarry? The Bantrys turn to Miss Marple to solve the mystery.

Warriors #5: A Dangerous Path by Erin, Hunter
http://www.amazon.com/Warriors-5-Dan...=discounter-20
The saga continues in the fifth book in the Warriors series as the cat Fireheart, now deputy leader of Thunderclan, finds himself taking on even more responsibility because clan-leader Bluestar is both physically and mentally ill.

Shapes on the Wind by David Lewis
http://www.amazon.com/Shapes-on-the-...reative=381421
Shapes on the Wind is the autobiography of David Lewis, one of the world's old sea salts, sailors and adventurers. An uncompromising participator in the varieties and vagaries of active life, he has ventured onto sea, land and ice in every corner of the globe, investigating and testing the elements and himself for emotional and aesthetic potential.

The White Body of Evening by A L McCann
http://www.amazon.com/White-Body-Eve...reative=381421
Behind the respectable facade of turn-of-the-century Melbourne lies another, darker city -- one of obsession, derangement, dissipation and crime. This is the world that has driven Albert Walters to the brink of madness, that haunts his abused wife Anna and infects the lives of their children, Paul and Ondine.

Mars and Venus on a Date by John Gray
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000QCQ9PC/?tag=discounter-20
The latest tentacle of John Gray's formidable Mars and Venus octopus deals with a topic near to the heart of almost everybody--dating.

Greencat, you are a wonder! Thanks for this gem, it is one of my favorite Agatha Christies, and comes on top of the FREE Lemony Snickets you pointed me to earlier. It feels like Christmas today, and "sweetens my reading palate" after absorbing all the bad feelings aired on this forum -- arising from the publisher-retailer ebook pricing and availability fiasco.

They never were. The original poster neglected to say (or perhaps didn't know) that they were only free in the US.

Harry,

I suspect it's a combination of both. I tried to set my address to the UK one day, to check a price. Can't do it without looking up a legitimate street address there and filling the entire thing in, as if it were my shipping address. I gave up, rather than go thru the hassle.

It looks like with the new agency pricing, the publishers are setting special prices in each country, rather than only having Amazon add $2 plus VAT (which I suspect still gets added, it's just harder to predict the prices outside the US from looking at a listing).

Probably a glitch at Amazon. So far all ebooks I have tried failed.

I think the party might be over. I tried a few of the books and they're disappeared from Amazon's Kindle store completely.

All the links work.. but with 'normal' prices, or 'not available in Australia'..

It was worth having a look... You just never know...
